Graham Entrepreneurship Lecture Series Features Young Entrepreneur
Matt Wilson, co-founder of Under30CEO.com., is the featured speaker when Penn State York continues its Graham Entrepreneurship Lecture Series, Visionary Leaders. The program is set for Thursday, April 7, at 12:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. The event is open to the public. Last year the lecture series kicked-off with Sheila C. Johnson, entrepreneur, philanthropist, co-founder of Black Entertainment Television, and president of the Women’s National Basketball Association’s Washington Mystics.
Wilson, who co-founded Under30CEO.com along with Jared O’Toole, created a website dedicated to giving young entrepreneurs the tools and resources they need to succeed. After using social media to create a huge buzz online, Under30CEO was written about in numerous publications including Entrepreneur and Reuters, and Wilson began helping others build their brands through the digital marketing firm Shadow Concepts LLC.
Wilson’s passion for entrepreneurship began at Bryant University, Smithfield, R.I., where he led the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization to becoming the world’s #1 entrepreneurship organization and earned personal accolades as National Student Leader of the Year. Wilson was a finalist for Alister and Paine’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2010 and has been a keynote speaker to groups of more than 1,000 people. His personal mission is to inspire young people to use technology to create opportunity and become leaders.
A question and answer session will follow Wilson’s presentation.
